For Lam, learning is a means to fully recharge and rejuvenate in a world outside of work – one which provides simultaneous escape, rest, and physical and intellectual nourishment. As such, learning for Lam is the most positive and constructive type of leisure.

Over the 35 years Lam spent at the Hong Kong Observatory, he undertook courses on bird watching, dance, Western art appreciation and Spanish classes at HKU SPACE – experiences that immeasurably enriched his life. According to Lam, life is a journey of continuous exploration and discovery. He says: “Hong Kong people are too busy. We should all keep looking for things that inspire us. Only then can we live out a meaningful and fulfilling life.”

After over a decade of being a full-time athlete, Law Hiu Fung chose to step back, become a coach, and take up studying before once again getting out on the water. With a diploma under his belt, Law no longer dreads retirement, because the knowledge he has gained has opened up new roads and options for him. Burden-free, Law now rows with greater confidence, assurance, and conviction. He said, “We all need to keep learning. No matter who you meet in life, or what you encounter, you can always find something to learn from everyone and everything.”

Ng On Yee, also known as “Hong Kong Cue Queen”, routinely adjusts her signature round-framed spectacles as she speaks. She claims this extra pair of ‘eyes’ is her trump card. We are in the snooker room of the Hong Kong Sports Institute, the space where the young star built her career. Ng recounts her moving story with quiet yet captivating charisma – and we wouldn’t expect anything less from the world’s reigning ladies snooker champion.
